About the Study

The Law Society of Singapore, with co-funding from the Ministry of Law, commissioned Blackbox Research, an independent research consultancy to assess the current level of technology adoption in Singapore law firms and solicit feedback to chart the future of legal technology and its relevance to Singapore law firms. The study, which took place between May and August 2018, comprised two parts: 1) an online survey including 495 decision makers, end users (e.g. lawyers, legal secretaries, paralegals etc.) and technology personnel working in law firms and 2) focus group discussions with non-adopters of legal tech and high-adopters of legal tech. Specifically, the graphs and quotes below represent views amongst senior leadership teams in Singapore law firms.
